We begin with a generous sampling of a new archival Grateful Dead release, Winterland 1973: The Complete Recordings.

– Grateful Dead, Winterland 1973: The Complete Recordings

Last week we lost a crazy sweet man, saxophonist Martin Fierro. Blair Jackson posted an obit on DeadNet, and tonight I’m playing some of his music for you. Thanks to Charlie Miller for his assistance with the selections.

Fran Harris mentioned that there’s a nice collection of photos on Martin’s web site.

Let It Grow – Grateful Dead, Wake of the Flood

Martin played on this studio track, and blows a fine solo!
